NHS England carried out a stocktake of progress in completing Personal Medical Services (PMS) reviews in December 2015. This found:

a) There are 10 PMS practices in Hampstead and Kilburn; none of these have had a PMS contract review as yet;

b) 620 (100%) PMS contract reviews are still to be completed in London; and

c) 1,847 (61%) PMS contract reviews have been completed in England.

The proposed London-wide contract and funding has been communicated to practices. Camden Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Brent CCG commissioning intentions are currently being agreed and will be communicated to practices in line with the timetable.
